LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Quaker Ave. was blocked off in both directions from 87th Street to 93rd Street due to a natural gas main leak.

Fire crews were actively monitoring gas levels in the area and evacuated structures as needed.

Crews hope to have the gas line fully repaired by 4 p.m., if not sooner.
